Maryam is a Chevening scholar, studying an MSc in Psychological Research at the University of Edinburgh. She completed her dissertation on the politics of moral expansion. She is also a member of the Societal Psychology lab at LSE where she is working on a project that aims to understand decision-making for health in the context of poverty in Pakistan. Her research interests include how perceptions of inequality influence our attitudes, the moral concern we grant to others and how both, our identities and those of others, interact and influence the expansiveness of our moral circles. She has plans to pursue a PhD exploring similar topics in the near future.
